Updated & Expanded: How to Get Your Book Published

How to Get Your Book Published

The No. 1 most popular post at my site is Start Here: How to Get Your Book Published. After nearly three years, I’m happy to say I’ve expanded and fully updated it.

If you already know the ins and outs of how to get a book published, then I hope you’ll share this post with a friend who might be new to writing or book publishing. It’s especially handy for times when you’re asked, “How do I get a book published?” and you don’t even know where to start. My advice is geared toward the beginner who needs to understand the basic steps involved—from assessing commercial potential to researching agents and editors to submitting queries (and beyond).
